Celebrating Book Sale Success: Poppets & Magical Days

My publisher, Moon Books, has told me that Pagan Portals - Poppets and Magical Dolls has reached another big sales milestone, having sold more than 4,000 copies. A big thanks to everyone who has bought a copy, left a review, and told me they've enjoyed reading it. 

Here's the description from the back cover: 
Poppets are dolls used for sympathetic magic, and are designed in the likeness of individuals in order to represent them in spells to help, heal or harm. Pagan Portals – Poppets and Magical Dolls explores the history of poppets and offers a practical guide to making and using them in modern witchcraft. It also covers seasonal dolls, from Brigid dolls, used in celebrations for the first stirrings of spring, to fairy dolls enjoyed in tree-dressing at Yuletide.
On Saturday 16 March I'm teaching a workshop on poppet magic at Treadwell's Bookshop, 33 Store Street, Bloomsbury London, WC1E 7BS. The class starts at 1pm and tickets are £22 per person. You can find out more or book a place at You can also buy copies of my books at the store.

Every Day Magic

Moon Books has also told me that the community book I edited - Every Day Magic - A Pagan Book of Days - has now sold over 2,500 copies! Thanks so much to everyone who contributed to the book and bought copies since it was published. It contains contains 366 spells, rituals, meditations, Pagan prayers, divinatory techniques, poems to read and recipes and craft projects to try out. Contributors include Geraldine Beskin, Ellen Evert Hopman, Melusine Draco, Harmonia Saille, Rachel Patterson, Caroline Wise and Elen Sentier and other Moon Books writers.

As well as coming up with the idea for Every Day Magic, I edited and contributed to it - and I'm very proud of it. However, as it is a community book I do not receive royalties - I asked for any money raised from it to be used to help bring more pagan writers' works into publication.

You can view Every Day Magic on Amazon and via my author page at Moon Books. Please note I earn commission from some links. This helps subsidise my blog at no extra cost to readers.
